Rotoworld Whore Report - 6/24

Adam Not-PacMan Jones is going to pray for Don Imus. We all should. Have you seen his hair? He is a doomed soul. It's a good thing we have saints like Jones to put in a good word to God about guys like him.


Hey Adam, you wanna also ask God if he'll give me more comments and emails about this blog at FFWritersWithHair@gmail.com? I would think that the Pulitzer worthy content on this site would draw more reader participation. Pulitzer worthy content like today's report from your resident Rotoworld Whore.

Hefty Lefty Left out of Giants QB Mix
Giants released QB Jared Lorenzen.

A J Load off their roster. Lorenzen was a four-year pet project for Tom Coughlin, but he lost favor in 2007 after an ugly preseason and an ankle injury. Anthony Wright is likely to beat David Carr for the backup spot. Rookie Andre Woodson will either be the third quarterback or get placed on the practice squad.

When Tom Coughlin says there was no room for the 285 pound Lorenzen on the roster, he means it literally.


Vernon Davis is Very Fast
49ers offensive coordinator Mike Martz praised Vernon Davis' work ethic and speed this offseason.

"I don't know who beats him in a footrace," said Martz. Literally no tight ends can; Davis runs a 4.38 at 254 pounds. Martz is showing Davis film of Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce rather than tight ends Martz has coached, signaling his plans to use Davis out wide. Still, we won't have a great idea of how Davis will be used until the preseason. Only so many receivers can play outside.

I bet Jared Lorenzen would give Davis a run for his money. Pun intended. Really though, if Martz envisions Vernon Davis as his Torry Holt of the 49ers, he could be set for a breakout year. Also, with Delanie Walker and his big, new contract wowing Martz as well, San Fran could produce two fantasy relevant tight ends this season, with Davis out wide and Walker in the slot.

Leftwich Cuts 25 Pounds of Dead Weight
Free agent Byron Leftwich says he's lost 25 pounds and wants to join a team for training camp.
His first Rotoworld post in 17 weeks. Dropping 25 lbs off his playing weight would put Leftwich at 6'5/225 and possibly enhance his mobility. Bears personnel director Bobby DePaul called Leftwich "an interesting guy," but the 28-year-old QB hasn't had so much as a free agent visit. Perhaps Chicago will give him a call if Kyle Orton doesn't separate himself this summer.

Apparently Byron didn't want to end up as the next Jared Lorenzen. He'll most likely earn a spot on a team somewhere. I heard the Buccaneers are looking to carry 134 qbs on their roster and I think they only have 133 at the moment.

Haynesworth's Contract Negotiations Nowhere Close to Being Resolved
After Jeff Fisher called the scenario unlikely last week, GM Mike Reinfeldt said Monday that the Titans would consider agreeing not to franchise Albert Haynesworth in 2009 if he plays under his one-year tender in 2008.
When Reinfeldt worked in Seattle, the Seahawks did something similar with Shaun Alexander, but still struck a long-term deal in 2006 (and how well that turned out). With extension talks stalled, Fisher's stance on the matter makes more sense. Haynesworth would get $7.25 million via the 2008 tender.

When will teams start to actually give money to the best players on their team? Albert is the best you got Reinfeldt. Just give him the money so the contract disputes can stop taking up rotoworld space that could be used to cover Jared Lorenzen news.

Chilo Rachal to Play Backup Guard
Following the 49ers' signing of Barry Sims, second-round pick Chilo Rachal is expected to move to guard after being used at tackle during OTAs.
There was in-house disagreement about whether Rachal should've tried tackle in the first place. He'll likely back up right guard David Baas this year.
Barry Sims may play better tackle than Rachal, but I be he can't lean like a Chilo.
Wow. That might have been the most cheesy, pointless thing I've ever written, or ever will write on this blog.
